This is a relaxing and interesting way to learn about this historic town. The tour takes you to the outskirts of town, to places further than you might want to walk. Once you have been onboard, you can decide what you want to return to see in more detail. Cute town, nice people living there...all who will be happy to help you with any questions you might have.

The historic Jacksonville Trolley Tour starts downtown on N. Third Street next to the Beekman Bank exhibit at California Street. The tours last under an hour and runs seasonally 7 days a week. The summer 2013 schedule starts each tour hourly between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM.

You board the trolley at the starting point (not jumping on mid-tour) and it winds its way through town, with a narration of history and interesting sights. This is a perfect way to explore areas outside of the downtown core. They ask $5 for adults and $3 for ages 6-12, free under 6. When you pay, you are helping this quaint historic town thrive. What a great investment!

I love the trolley tour because it is special and quaint and just fun! I am a local and I love my houseguests to take the trolley with me. After many rides over five years, I have found the narration is slightly different each time because the moderators add their own emphasis. That makes it charmingly personal. Go multiple times to get that different perspective and refresh your memory on the stories you heard before.

Please take the trolley tour and decide for yourself!

Since we were only in Jacksonville for one day, we wanted to get acquainted with its history and important sites. On the trolley you could choose between open-air seating at either end or an enclosed area in the middle. Obviously not wheel-chair accessible but one gentleman was able to climb aboard with help and his wheel chair was stowed in the rear. The tour itself was narrated by the driver who took it slowly and paused by important buildings, the cemetery and special shops. This was a pleasant way to spend most of an hour for only $5.00 per adult.

Our driver was charming, and it's a good way to see the 1850-1880 houses and stores, but the seats are flat-out uncomfortable, and too many of the sights are retail establishments. There's a little history but just a little, ad no sense of wh now lives in the town.
